Learning Modalities

Synchronous and Asynchronous Learning Modalities

Synchronous learning is when classes occur on set schedules and time frames. Students and instructors are online at the same time in synchronous classes since lectures, discussions, and presentations take place at specific hours.

On the other hand, Asynchronous classes let students complete their work on their own time. Students are given a time frame – it’s usually a one-week window – during which they need to connect to their class at least once or twice.
